If you wake up to a warm house in the middle of winter, you depend on a central furnace to provide heat. Most homes and businesses in Indiana rely on a central HVAC system to keep them warm during the winter months, and a professional to handle their furnace repair needs.

Your home heating system or furnace is a key indicator of every family member’s comfort. There are several different types of heating systems, but each one works by blowing heated air through ducts that deliver that warm air to rooms throughout the space.

Even in the summer months, it’s important to make sure your furnace is in proper working order. Ongoing maintenance takes care of your furnace year-round so small problems don’t become major issues.

Furnace repair for your Indiana home

Natural gas is the most popular fuel used for HVAC in the United States. Furnace fuel is largely dependent on the availability in your area. 

While most areas have natural gas, in some rural areas, the required piping infrastructure is not available and homeowners are limited to propane, fuel oil or electric furnaces.

  • Split Systems: This is perhaps the most common system in Europe and Asia where ductwork in a home is rare. Split heat systems provide heating through a single device on a room-by-room basis.
    •  A split system simply connects individual indoor units to an outdoor unit via refrigerant lines. Each indoor unit acts independently and can provide customized heating and cooling for a single room.
  • Oil Burners: Oil-fired heating systems use three ways to distribute heat. They can either use vents, radiators, or hot water baseboards. The oil travels from a tank to a burner, where it becomes a fine mist mixed with air.
    • This fuel/air mixture is then injected into the burner where it is ignited in the combustion chamber and dispersed throughout your home.
  • Water Source Heat Pumps: A water source heat pump operates similar to a traditional air source heat pump, with one main difference. Rather than extracting and dissipating heat by way of air, it uses water. This type of home system is not typically available to anyone.
    • You need to live close to a well, lake, or another natural water source. If you do, this is an option to consider because it can be used to both heat your home in the winter and cool it in the summer.
  • Geothermal Heating: Geothermal heating uses the same basic idea as a water heat pump, but uses ground source water rather than a well or lake. Geothermal heating has been around for over 50 years, but is rarely used because of the expensive and complicated installation.
    • It is ideal for those who plan to stay in their home for many years, and are focused on creating sustainability in their environment.

Common Repair Issues for your furnace

Many different heating systems still share common furnace repair needs. Most of these are simple furnace repairs that can be completed in a couple of hours, if performed by a licensed HVAC contractor.  

Dirty or clogged air filters are one of the biggest culprits of furnace repair problems. They reduce airflow, making the system work harder to circulate warm air.

There are several electrical components including the ignition, pilot, and thermocouple, that can cause problems. Ultimately, these can be a fairly simple furnace repair when performed by an expert.

A faulty thermostat can also lead to problems with the fan or comfort levels. Many homeowners may assume their furnace is faulty when in reality, it’s just a thermostat issue.

Cycling between the “On” and “Off” modes may indicate a clogged filter, improper airflow, or a bad thermostat setting. All of these furnace repair problems can be fixed quickly by an HVAC professional.

Blowers that are continuously running might be an indication of a problem with the limit switch, which can be replaced by a professional.

Your heating system should be relatively quiet. An obvious sound of rumbling, squeaking, and rattles aren’t normal and may indicate a mechanical problem that should be looked into.

Many of these common furnace repair issues can be prevented with regular and ongoing maintenance of your system. Annual furnace maintenance and inspections can prevent unexpected problems and breakdowns and help your system run more efficiently.

installation of a new heating system

If your furnace repair costs more than half of the cost of a new unit, it’s worth investing in a new HVAC system. Installing a new furnace in your home is not a DIY project. Even the most experienced handyman should consult a professional contractor for installing any type of furnace. The main reason for this is the hazards involved in HVAC installation. There are four main hazards that require professional care for new heating system installation:

Furnace repair is important for the winter time in New Albany, IN so you can stay warm.

  1.  Chemical Use: Freon is the name for a class of chemicals called chlorofluorocarbons or CFCs, used mainly in refrigeration and air conditioning. Breathing in these fumes in order to get high can be very risky, even fatal. Furnace repair experts are trained and prepared with equipment to safely work with these chemicals.
  2. Accidental Fires: If you’re replacing a badly maintained unit, or dealing with lots of debris around the unit, it can add strain on your electrical system. A furnace repair expert is trained to look for these hazards and omit them before, during, and after the installation process.
  3. Gas Leaks: Natural gas furnaces are the most popular type of furnace repair. Where there is natural gas, there is also Carbon Monoxide (CO), which is a colorless, odorless, tasteless gas. A professionally trained contractor understands how to detect the presence of CO and keep your home and family safe.
  4. Equipment: Oftentimes, replacing your HVAC unit requires sharp tools, specialized equipment, and specific processes that should only be handled by a trained professional.

Regardless of the system you’re using, a lot of dangerous components are present that are out of a normal homeowner’s element. Professional installation of your home’s new heating system allows for strict adherence to important safety protocol, and ensures your system is working before a contractor leaves your home.
